DESIGN, SYNTHESIS AND EVALUATION OF SOME NOVEL DIHYDROPYRIMIDINE DERIVATIVES AS POSSIBLE ANTIMICROBIAL AGENTS
Pyrimidine is a six membered cyclic compound containing 4 carbon and 2 nitrogen atoms and is pharmacologically inactive but its synthetic derivatives possess an important role in modern medicine. Pyrimidines and their derivatives are considered to be important for drugs and agricultural chemicals. Pyrimidine derivatives possess several interesting biological activities such as antimicrobial, antit...
Hormonal changes during the menstrual cycle are well documented but there are very few reports on the changes in serum calcium, phosphorus and uric acid levels in various phases of the menstrual cycle. Therefore, present study was conducted on 50 healthy females in the age group of 18-35 menstruating regularly (cycle length between 25 and 35 days). The study demonstrated that serum calcium levels ...
Raise in the multidrug resistance gave challenge to the treatment of tuberculosis with first line medication due to less response. Nanoparticle drug delivery has proven efficiency in improving the therapeutic efficacy of many drugs. Reduction of dosing frequency was achieved by applying drug delivery using Nano medicine and Green Nanotechnology. The present study aimed in the production of such dr...
